It's being taught (to teachers) now that relationship building is the key to successfully instruct students of any age. I have to agree with what the egg head data implies about that.<quoted text>
I would have so had a crush on Ancient Wolf if he was my teacher. Oh Mr Wolf , I think I need some private study time.
Ethnic/special needs students sadly are a big factor in and often a stumbling block for current instructors completing the slow fade out of authoritarian type teaching styles and the coming in of the relationship building based teaching strategies in high schools.
Jr college and on...forget it, most of the instructors simply throw up a website and say have at it.... The egg heads need a shake up is what I am getting at.
LOL I'm sure the type relationship building you spoke of would have its good points in a Jr college online setting MissE and would be better than no apparent strategy(as they have now)but that would be hard to do over the net lol.
The kids fresh out of institutional based curriculums have to readjust and readjust fast to the online world. Sure they give them a taste of online learning in high school but no one has came up with a way to bridge the relationship gap insofar as online learning goes, as of yet.
Many students are just too dang poor to have much online experience at all.
I am working on an idea of how to fix that. I have a proposal drawn up but have been putting of presenting it until I work out some details. It's something like this forum right here..a little more structured but not much. I think it could work and in doing so help a lot of students in the future.
I have also been looking for the right big chief to present it to, like I have said before its getting harder and harder to find a human being in this world crowded with people.
